Sadly, I am no longer employed by IBM, so this blog which started as a team blog for the IBM Business Partner Technical Strategy Enablement (IBPTSE) Telecom team no longer represents IBM in any shape or form. As I became the Chief Telecom Architect for IBM for the WebSphere brand worldwide, I continued to write posts. The WebSphere brand merged into the new Cloud brand in 2015 and I retained the same role working with Telcos all around the world to design software solutions to solve their business problems. I left IBM in 2017 and am now working for DGIT Systems
, a small IT company focused on helping Telcos be more agile through alignment with TMForum Frameworx - particularly for Order Management and Fulfilment solutions. My hope is to continue/resurrect this blog on Telecom business issues and technology.
Thanks for visiting. Please comment on posts and leave your thoughts.
WebSphere in Telecom, M&E and E&U Industries
The Industry Business Partner Technical Strategy Enablement (IBPTSE) team is focused on helping IBM's business partners in their technical strategy with respect to IBM Software - specifically WebSphere software. We focus on three undustries:
- Media & Entertainment
- Energy & Utilities
I guess you're wondering what to expect form this blog. Over the next few posts, I plan to talk about resources that are available to IBM Business Partners - specifically in our team's focus industries, some of the latest issues we are seeing in our industries, some discussion of IBM software technology and some thoughts on IBM's Smarter Planet initiatives.
In terms of introductions, our team has people around the world, with coverage of North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. I live in Australia and have team mates in China, Taiwan and India and between us, we cover the whole of Asia Pacific.
